"Yonetsuru Sparkling Rose” is a rosé-type effervescent sake made only with rice and rice koji, without sugar, acidity regulators, or brewed alcohol. As some degree of alcohol must be removed from effervescent liquors while maintaining flavor, we took care with the control of the unrefined sake even more so than with Daiinjo. This sake is made with time and attention, with the brew master personally confirming pressure by taste of the sake during carbonic acid gas injection, and with low-temperature management and bottling performed by hand. A clear pink sake fermented by red yeast and featuring a sweet tartness, it is a fun new type of sake clearly distinct from traditional Japanese sake. The sake is a gold medal winner in the sparkling category of the SAKE division of International Wine Challenge (IWC)2018, the world's most influential wine exhibition, and offers an authentic taste backed by skill. Its mini bottle size is easily finished, perfect for casual sampling.

[About "Yonetsuru"]
The name "Yonetsuru" is derived from the bowing posture of ears of rice and the locally told tale "Crane's Return of a Favor." It incorporates a wish to create a sake that conveys a sense of gratitude and is imbued with sincerity. Under the concept of brewing that starts with rice-growing, this Japanese sake uses locally produced rice to offer a refreshing balance of scent, taste, and sharpness.

糖類、酸味料、醸造アルコールを使わず、米、米麹のみを原料として造ったロゼタイプの発泡性日本酒が「米鶴 スパークリング ロゼ」です。発泡酒は旨みを残しつつ、アルコールもある程度出さなくてはならないので、醪の管理には大吟醸よりも気を使いました。炭酸ガスの注入は、杜氏がきき酒をしてガス圧を自分の口で確認しながら行い、さらに低温管理や手作業での瓶詰めなど手間暇をかけて丁寧に造った酒です。赤色酵母が醸す澄んだピンク色の日本酒は甘酸っぱい味わいで、伝統的な日本酒とは一線を画す新しいタイプの楽しい酒です。世界最高権威を誇るワイン品評会「インターナショナル・ワイン・チャレンジ2018」SAKE部門スパークリングの部において金メダルを獲得しているとおり、技術に裏付けされた本物の味が楽しめます。手頃なミニボトルの飲みきりサイズですので、気軽に味わいを試すことができます。
